mmmmmmmmamss&m SPIKING BY COBB UNINTENTIONAL; HE NEVER INJURES BOBBY WALLACE By Bill Evans. Frequently the papers mention that So and So was spiked by Ty Cobb. After one of these spiking episodes, the question is'asked me a thousand times, "Does Cobb try to injure players?' Because Cobb ("The Peach") figures in many spiking incidents, the public gets the idea that he willfully tries to injure inv fielders to get a base, and create fear so that the next time he slides the guardian will be afraid. In answer to the question, I always say that Cobb never intentionally injured a player. While it may seem that Cobb deliberately tries to injure a player, such is not ever the case. Few players, after the excitement of the pennant race has passed, will say Cobb tries to put players out of the running. I have heard infielders admit that they, not Cobb, were responsible for an accident. When Cobb slides he is a hard man to figure. If the player guesses correctly all is well, but if...

HH jrttP5.-fc- " "- 'p - - - -r- ! - gy j- u n t - V ' - ' INNOCULATION FOR TYPHOID Though innoculation against typhoid has been successfullypracticed for a number of years, the majority of people know little or nothing about this mode of fighting this disease. Innoculation has been used on a large scale in various armies, and with such results as to prove its efficiency beyond doubt. Typhoid is what is called a "self limiting disease." That is .to say, it stirs up the system to the production of antitoxins that drive out the typhoid germs if the patient doesn't die before the battle between the germs and the "antibodies" is over. It has been found that by injecting under the skin a small quantity of dead typhoid culture the body will react against it and produce enough of these "antibodies" to ward off such live typhoid germs as may get into the system. The body is then immune from typhoid for a period of two years or longer. ' The value of innoculation for typhoid was strikingly '...

1 THE DAILY SHORT STORY. His Bar Examination. The state bar examination was in progress. The watchful eyes of the members of the examining committee were upon each candidate. -The applicants were ambitious in the best sense. Mainwould be heard from in the years to come. John Harding, esq., was one of the examiners., Harding was a broad man. One candidate before him enlisted his sympathy. This man was Victor Hope. There was- a story back of the young man. Hope was a bank teller, and had maintained a widowed mother while pursuing his stuies. He had studied in an evening school. Another fact was also known to the examiner. Hope was in love with an attractive and deserving stenographer who worked in a busy law office. While some of Hope's friends were somewhat skeptical, Myrtle Willow had never lost faith in him. The world did not understand. The examiner did. A hero sat before him. The Hon. John Harding observed the youth a slave to ambition. Was it a good thing for a young man to be a...

"I don't know whether to say yes or no," was again the reply to the desperate candidate. "You don't know?'' repeated the Hon. John Harding. "Didn't o- your girl know what to say when you asked her to marry you?" When Harding looked over the papers the next day he found that the question had been answered in the affirmative.

STORY ABOUT A WEDDING Papers full of domestic scandals. Statisticians pouring forth awful figures about the increase of divorce. Theorists gloomily announcing the downfall of the American home.

" VETERAN BIG LEAGUERS PASSING; HEMPHILL AND HARTSEL MANAGERS By Billy Evans. Charley Hemphill will manage the Atlanta Southern league team next year. Topsy Hartsel will manage the Toledo American association team in 1912. Such was the news a few daj's ago, relative to the two American league veterans who have been with the organization since its birth. The passing of these two players, who have been among the big stars in the organization, brings to mind the truth that "youth must be served." No doubt before the opening of the season a number of others will be relegated to the minors. While stars come and go. there are a few veterans who apparently S on forever. There is Nap Lajoie, Bobby Wallace. Bill Donovan and a few others in the American league, who follow the pace set by the youngsters in fine style.
